Feeding-earthworms-mulched-yard

One option for feeding worms from the bins: Bedding at the “halfway point” is spread on the heavily mulched “winter feeding yard” out the north end of the greenhouse (which houses a flock of chickens in winter). The chickens eat the worms and worm eggs, in the process scratching the worm castings into the mulch, which retains their fertility for the coming garden season. Note that fresh grain grasses (wheat, oats, rye, etc.) from the greenhouse are also being fed—a rich source of vitamins and enzymes.
